Figures, right? Jason gets a little recognition from the music industry, but it happens during the untelevised portion of the show. Ah, well.
Jason won Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for “Make It Mine”, which is a bit surprising considering I don’t think it’s gotten much radio time and I can’t believe many Grammy voters have ever heard the song. He beat out John Legend, Maxwell (I had no idea he was still around), Seal and Stevie Wonder. Not a shabby group of nominees.
He also won Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals for “Lucky” with Colbie Caillat, which isn’t surprising at all, because that’s on the radio all the time.
I believe the untelevised bits were streamed live online, but I can’t find a photo or video clip of any of this. (Was Jason even at the show?) If you know of one, please send it my way. His own website is useless for that kind of thing.
Wait. I found some:

Is that Kramer hair, or Lyle Lovitt? Ooh! Neither. That’s Giovanni Ribisi in “The Wonder Years”. Check it out:
Whatever. Jason makes it all his own.
I’m following your joy,
Update 2/4/10: Here’s a little more Mraz Grammy coverage:
